Monkey Bread

I just love late summer morning that are cool, you know fall will soon be here!  I have to admit that I love the late summer early fall mornings and evenings.  It is cool in the am, warms up during the day (not to hot) and the evening are cool enough for a little fire in backyard pit to enjoy with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Well this was the first morning that when I woke up it was 60 degrees, sunny and beautiful morning.  So I opened up my house, sat on the porch with my coffee and that overwhelming feeling of wanting to bake just had to be met.  So off to the kitchen I went to see what I had on hand!  These type mornings call for cinnamon…. So I had plenty of biscuits so Monkey Bread it was!
